What I Got My Family For Christmas | Edinburgh Edition

Processed with VSCO with ku1 presetI love a good old gift giving. I’m SUCH a sucker for it. My family is not big on Christmas, at least not on the gifting part. Last year we weren’t going to do any gift exchange whatsoever, but I caved at the last moment and ended up on a little shopping spree buying each person from my family a little Christmas present. Then, on Christmas Eve, I wrapped them all up, wrote a little Christmas card with a little explanation as to why I brought them each what I brought, then I signed it from ‘Santa’ and then put it all out on the kitchen table once everyone else had gone to bed. I told you, I’m SUCH A SUCKER. This year is no exception. I went to all of my favourite local shops in Edinburgh to get the best of the best for the people I love most. …

Maybelline Total Temptations | Review

Maybelline JUST announced that they’re launching a whole new collection called ‘total temptation‘ and I managed to get my hands on it so I could get you all the lowdown before it drops! There are three products in the release: a shadow/highlight palette, a brow pencil, and a mascara. The whole line is pink and sparkly, and is infused with coconut extract (aka smells awesome). Safe to say, I was super thrilled to see this in my mailbox….

New Year's Eve Playlist

I’m sure you’ve had your share of Christmas playlists by this point in Blogmas, but what about NYE? New year’s eve is the night to celebrate ONLY the good things from the past year and inspire yourself to do even better next year so it NEEDS only the best of the best music. These are my picks of songs that range from just really peppy and going to pump! you! up! for a heck of a night, to songs that make you want to book a flight and do something adventurous STAT, to songs that remind you about growing up and the importance of enjoying every minute of life! …

NARS Wanted Palette Review

25115086_10155932956088493_1727861003_n
I’ve been on the hunt for an excellent peachy toned eyeshadow palette for awhile now. I didn’t want to buy the really popular ones like the Too Faced Sweet Peach or Kylie Cosmetics because they either had colours I didn’t like, or I’ve been disappointed by their palettes before (whoops)! When Nars announced the Wanted palette I was instantly hooked. Luckily there was a VIB sale at Sephora right when it dropped so I got it with $20 off!! SO HAPPY. Now let’s see if it lives up to all my hopes and dreams……

A Beginner's Holiday Nails!

I’m definitely still a beginner when it comes to doing my nails. No matter how hard I try, I just never have the patience or stillness to do them nicely, but I still love to have them done! I think it looks so professional and fancy when you’ve got nail polish on, but my nails are really brittle so if it’s not shellac it’s going to start peeling or chipping REALLY fast. Here are my holiday nails, which have a solution to every one of my problems :)…

Tips and Tricks for the Best Matte Lips

Matte lips have been in for awhile now, from Taylor Swift’s iconic red lip to the craze around ColourPop and Kylie’s Matte Lip Kits they’ve proven they’re here to stay. Before the days of lip kits and liquid matte lipstick, and before I had any kind of disposable income to spend on those products I had to develop my own more crafty ways to get a matte lip.
